The Qikiqtani Inuit Association has started accepting applications for the 2017-18 version of the $5,000 John Amagoalik Scholarship.

The QIA’s deadline for receipt of applications is Aug. 18, 2017.

To be eligible for the scholarship, you must be:

• an Inuk under the Nunavut Agreement and the holder of a valid NTI card;

• a student enrolled in a post-secondary academic institution for September and January semesters, preferably in a field that promotes Inuit language and culture; and,

• maintaining a full course load and maintain a passing grade point average.

In a QIA news release, Neoma Cox, last year’s recipient and a student at Nunavut Arctic College’s Environmental Technology Program, said the scholarship was a big help.

“It helped me stay on track with my studies by assisting with my childcare costs and additional school equipment and supplies to do my field work,” Cox said.
